No fooling, it was a gorgeous "winter like" morning to skijor French Gulch today!
|Great shot of Max & Zorro launching me up a slight rise on the Little French Gulch Trail.|
There was a slight breeze behind us on the initial leg out French Gulch. We were gliding along peacefully when suddenly the breeze brought the wonderful "scent of moose" from behind us. Max & Zorro never miss moose aroma...
|"Sniff, sniff - hey! I smell moose behind us!" declares moose scenting Zorro.|
"Really, let me get a whiff!" says Max dipping his nose to the left in response to Zorro's actions.
The scent behind us was so strong that it pulled Max & Zorro off trail and gazing into the forest. Never doubt the nose of a Siberian Husky...
|"Bingo! Found one!" declare the moose spotting pair.|
She was camouflaged deep in the trees; but 2 of us smelled her and I was able to spot
her hidden in the trees.
Anyway, done scenting and spotting a moose. Back to the day's main activity - skijoring. Here is a fun video clip of us cruising along the backcountry trails of French Gulch. Blogspot was acting weird as I was writing this, so you may need to click over to youtube directly to watch the video.

At our turnaround point in the last meadow of the gulch and Max thought Zorro needed a quick shoulder massage before restarting our run back in French Gulch...
|"Let me give you a quick rub down so we can go FAST back!" says silly Max.|
2015/2016 Season to Date: 107 days on the trails covering 908.7 miles with 99500 feet of elevation climbed.
